Museum of Ventura County hosts a free community celebration Nov. 1st

On Sunday, November 1, the Museum of Ventura County hosts a free community celebration of music, dance, and crafts from 11am – 3pm for the whole family. Visitors can also see the artist-created altars, called ofrendas, on display throughout the museum, and have their faces painted calaveras–style for a small fee.  This annual celebration has become very popular at the Museum , highlighting the local traditions of Day of the Dead/Dia de los Muertos.

Entertainment includes performances by Ballet Folklórico Mestizo of Oxnard College, Ballet Folklórico de Bell Arts, and Danza Azteca Tonzatin as well as DATA (DeAnza Academy of Technology and the Arts) Mariachi.
